Plaza Suite star Matthew Broderick has tested positive for COVID-19. His co-star and wife Sarah Jessica Parker has tested negative. Performances will continue while Broderick recovers, and Parker will play opposite Broderick's standby, Tony winner Michael McGrath.
Plaza Suite opened March 28 at the Hudson Theatre, under the helm of director John Benjamin Hickey. Previews began February 25 for the limited engagement, set to continue through June 26.
Neil Simon's Plaza Suite follows three different twosomes, each spending an evening in the famed Plaza Hotel: one couple dealing with difficulties in their marriage on their 24th anniversary, a pair of high-school sweethearts reuniting after many years apart, and the frenzied parents of a jittery bride on her wedding day.
In addition to Broderick and Parker, the cast includes Danny Bolero, Molly Ranson, and Eric Wiegand. Tony winner Michael McGrath and Tony nominee Erin Dilly standby for Broderick and Parker, respectively, with Laurie Veldheer, Cesar J. Rosado, Brian Eng, and Olivia Hernandez serving as understudies.
